Restore Emergency Unemployment Insurance

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

I’m writing to urge you to immediately renew Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC).

Congress should invest in more job creation, because we have 2 million fewer jobs today than before the financial crisis.

Please renew unemployment insurance now.
There are currently 9,760 signatures. NEW goal - We need 10,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program ended on December 28 for 1.3 million jobless Americans. Unemployment benefits will be cut from as much as 73 weeks to 26 weeks.

Democrats fought to include UI in the year-end budget plan. But the GOP war on workers knows no shame — three days after Christmas, in the middle of winter, 1.3 million families just lost a critical lifeline.

The Senate will vote to renew UI in less than two weeks, but it won’t pass unless we make our voices heard.

Demand that Congress renews unemployment insurance now.
